Leonardo DiCaprio and Celine Dion, enough said!  But, I love everything about that movie. The time period, the costume design, the age-old story of two star-crossed lovers. And in case you missed it before, Leonardo DiCaprio is bae. Very much bae.

Claudia: How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days

I mean… C’MON, Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson. Need I say more?! They always make magic in movies together. Okay, I’ll stop; but seriously, not only do I love the story line.  This really is me and my relationship right now.

Alyssa B: Odd Thomas 

If full fledged romance is not your thing then Odd Thomas may be the V Day flick for you. Odd, played by the late Anton Yelchin defends his small town from unseen forces with a cocktail of special abilities and his fearless soul mate. This romance/thriller is a gripping tale that will unapologetically take you across the emotional spectrum.

Alyssa I: P.S. I Love You

I love the movie because it shows how much he (Gerard Butler) really loved his wife. He knew he was dying and that his wife would be lonely. Planning letters and gifts a year ahead of time is the most selfless thing ever. If that’s not true love I don’t know what is.

Christian: Just Wright

She lands her dream job and fell in love with a basketball player she thought she’ll never have a chance with. He ended up falling in love with the woman she was. I just love the way the movie shows that you can literally end up with the person that’s perfect for you. Never give up on what your heart wants. You are worth being with the person your heart skips a beat for. ❤

Step Into My Closet: Dusters, Coats & Blazers

EVERY buy is an investment towards your wardrobe. Before I bring a staple piece into the fitting room, I have to think of how versatile it will be. The most important pieces to my wardrobe would have to be my coats and shoes. These are the most visible parts of your outfit, so they have to make a major statement NovaBabe!

Dusters

I love the simplicity of my staple pieces. A duster is needed in every woman’s closet. It gives off so much sophistication and really makes you feel like a boss. Not to mention, it’s the perfect jacket to complete the look for any and all occasions. You can rock your duster with a sheer top, flared jeans and booties by day and switch it up with a flirty dress by night.

Denim Jackets

Another must-have in my closet is a distressed denim jacket. This jacket is my “all else fails, throw this jacket on”  kind of piece. It goes with almost anything! You can get trendy with it too.  Go with the  denim on denim look or style it with an over-sized tee!

LISTEN UP: ‘4 Your Eyez Only’

A guy who goes platinum with no features is a guy you expect to take you lyrically higher each time his beat drops. J. Cole dropped 4 Your Eyez Only in early December, and it has already landed on numerous musical charts.

J. ColeThe storyline of the album was intimate yet raw, which was called for since the album was indirectly dedicated to his friend’s daughter. It was a gateway of untold stories that may have answered pending questions in the past. As you listen to the album from start to finish you’ll understand the imagery of the father-daughter relationship that was faulted to a dark lifestyle on the streets.

The actual single, 4 Your Eyes Only truly showed remorse and seeked forgiveness. It becomes completely clear that his friend knew his time was coming to an end. With his blessing,  J. Cole moved forward by telling his story through music to his daughter.
